    Overview

    Embrace the opportunity to engage in meaningful volunteer work in the Caribbean—animal welfare, carpentry and social service with kids. Learn tangible lessons about the social and conservation issues the islands face in the midst of a changing environment. And swim, snorkel, scuba dive and explore in one of the most beautiful and welcoming places on earth.

    The high school students who join VISIONS in the British Virgin Islands become part of a legacy spanning three decades of projects that serve the Afro-Caribbean community of Virgin Gorda, where we live in a humble community center overlooking the ocean. The BVI offers shorter programs than most of VISIONS other locations, with a jam-packed week or two of service and adventure. We do carpentry and other labor projects at under-resourced schools and parks, and also help with local youth programs. 

    After-work activities include exploring under-water life at the many beaches, scuba diving, hikes to gorgeous vistas, community barbecues, local cuisine cooking workshops, and lots of fun. 

    VISIONS programs offer the opportunity for powerful personal transformation and radical community building, which together serve as a starting point on a life path of deep meaning and purpose.
